Pad vs. Air, which one is better, as in more comfortable? Not hiking with it. Mostly just camping.
Air. As long as it stays aired up. I would get both. Foam pads are cheap. If budget is an issue get a cheap foam pad from Walmart and a descent air up and you'll sleep good. If you want to buy a nice foam pad ... try the Therm-a-Rest Ridge Rest $25 or Ridge Rest Deluxe $35. If your air pad deflates while your sleeping you'll be glad to have some extra foam underneath you.
Hey Brandon, thanks for the response. I think a foam pad plus air is a great idea.
